ㅤ”Bob Goodlatte’s measure would provide DACA recipients with a temporary, three-year legal status that could be renewed indefinitely, but immigrants would not be offered a path to citizenship.
ㅤThe measure would authorize $30 billion to build a border wall and invest in other border security measures, end chain migration and end the diversity visa lottery program — all of which were pillars outlined at Tuesday’s White House immigration meeting.
ㅤBut the Goodlatte bill would go a few steps further by mandating E-Verify, a system that crosschecks every new employment contract with a federal immigration status database; allowing the Justice Department to withhold grants from so-called sanctuary cities; and increasing the criminal penalties for deported criminals who return to the U.S. illegally.
ㅤUnder the proposal, immigration levels would be reduced by 25 percent overall, according to a summary sheet.”
